epowers007 Yeah I think I remember that the person who I bought it from mentioned they replaced the U-Joint, but he couldn't drescribe it, he knew what the part was called in Greek. So its possible that the mechanic didn't put it in right. I don't loose power it drives the same. I will check out the front and rear driveshafts and U-Joints, I just hope its not the tranny.

jdhallissey Mine did the same thing when I took it out for the first time. Like the 4wheel drive had never been pushed that far or something. I went to the badlands a month later and nothing of that noise. Will the jeep still have power? Mine I couldn't move anywhere as in the t-case was not fully engaged. To the CV joint Mine went bad and it sounds like angry Sparrows /birds chirping. A grinding sound I would check and see if the splash guards on the front brakes are not bent into the rotor.

snwchris Hmmm I would say first check the Front & Rear driveshafts, see if theres any play in the U-joints. Also try jacking the front end up and should be able to turn front DS to see if you hear anything binding.

Grinding noise under transfer case when Accelerating/Decelerating

Hey Guys, new to the Jeep world from the Mustang world. I know I know. But I just picked up a 2000 Sahara 5spd (all stock) and I noticed sort of a grinding noise when accelerating(not the whole gear) and decelerating. It seems it doesn't do it all the time, but it does it a lot when I'm I drop it in 4h or 4L. I'm hoping its nothing huge, maybe the CV joint? Any advice on what it sounds like and what to check out would help me a lot.
